State Senator Joe Kyrillos’ campaign responded to Leigh-Ann Bellew’s recent press release denouncing Kyrillos’ condemnation of the IRS’s targeting conservative groups as hypocritical, by calling the release, and his challenger, silly and foolish.
The Senator’s spokesman, Niles Barnhart, issued the following statement to MMM:
It is a silly press release from a silly candidate who told people she was a lawyer, yet never went to law school, and tells people she is a conservative, yet court records show she took out 20 credit cards running up nearly $140,000 in debt and then filed for bankruptcy.
Senator Kyrillos believes the IRS abuse is outrageous. He is preparing a resolution in the Legislature that urges the appointment of an independent counsel to get to the bottom of this unfair attack on Tea Party and conservative organizations.
Barnhart said that Kyrillos would not be responding “every time Bellew issues a foolish press release.
MMM did not call Bellew or her campaign for a response, because they haven’t returned our last 11 phone calls.
